Meagan Harris has been named vice president and news director at CBS Stations’ local businesses in Dallas-Fort Worth, including KTVT, KTXA, the CBS Texas streaming channel and CBSTexas.com.
Harris starts on Monday, June 5. She comes from NBCLX, where she was the news director. NBCLX originates from KXAS, the NBC-owned station in Fort Worth.
During the past four years, Harris has been a member of the team that has been responsible for taking NBCLX from concept to construction to execution, and has overseen the production of live newscasts since the launch of the network.
“Meagan Harris has established herself as an innovator and a true journalist who believes in the power, responsibility and privilege of what we do,” said Raquel Amparo, president and general manager of CBS Texas. “It has been impressive to see what Meagan has accomplished across the street as the leader of a broadcast, digital and streaming startup and we are excited to have her join our team at CBS Texas.”
“Meagan is a leader who shares CBS Stations’ commitment to the Three C’s of Content, Culture and Community,” added Adrienne Roark, president of CBS Stations. “She is passionate about local journalism and reimagining how we gather content to build a deeper, genuine connection with our audiences. And from a culture standpoint, Meagan puts her people first, while pushing them to realize their potential and grow skills beyond their comfort zones.”
“As someone who has been watching from across the street, I am thoroughly impressed by the transformation that has taken place at CBS Texas during the last two years,” Harris said. “I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to join Raquel and the amazing team there, and also have the support of (CBS News and Stations president and co-head) Wendy McMahon, Adrienne Roark and their CBS News and Stations colleagues as we all work together to produce impactful journalism and make our shop a great place to work.”
